I had some time to work on my purple projects this week- it's relaxing (and soothing) to be in the sewing room steadily piecing away...
it's interesting how the fabrics look purple by themselves, but when you put them all together, they can look blue, red OR brown. I have one more color family of purples to piece this week, and then that's it for the 6" crumb blocks for this month.
I'm a Kona snob, and it's showing! I just love the 16 patches- I've done them for a couple years now, and was seeing them pop up on other RSC17 project lists. originally, I thought that I'd do some more 16 patches this year with grey- but my RSC16 column along is using the Kona grey (I'm piecing that in solids as well, and will catch up and complete it as Angela calls each color this year.) and white is such a predictable choice, so: INDIGO it is!
can I just say I'm LOVING it? I know some of the purples lean heavily towards pink, but I had lots of purples/pink cut (3" square) for my granddaughter's plus quilt.
speaking of Kona and grandchildren: above and below are my two little grands- baby C and baby E. Kona cotton solids for both of their baby quilts, and I love them all. (the babies AND the quilts!) they were born 6 days apart, and I'm LOVING being a grandma!
I love, too, how the mommies are using their quilts in the monthly see-how-I-grew shots!
